anthony ciancia. c-i-a-n-c-i-a. they say he is 23 years old, born in february of 1990. a u.s. citizen who is living in the l.a. area. and as for the motive -- we're a long way from knowing that for certain. there is some indication, we're told, that he had strong anti-government views. that's based on some written material that we're told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by l.a. airport police. he is said to be in critical condition at the ucla medical. we believe that all of the people who were shot, all of the people he shot, were employees of the it tsa. one of whom was killed, three of whom were wounded, with varying degrees of severity of their injuries. but that he didn't shoot anyone else. one telling thing is what a witness said, who talked earlier today to msnbc, who said that the witness was approached by the gunman who said, do you work for the tsa. so it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the tsa. now, there had been some initial reporting from some news organizations that this suspect had a connecti
been identified as 23-year-old paul ciancia. he entered inside terminal 3 behind me and opened fire, killing a tsa agent, injuring at least seven others, before he himself was shot and taken into custody. this all happened very early friday morning during the middle of the morning commute. it was 9:30 a.m. the terminal was packed with passengers. police say he walked in, pulled a high-powered rifle out of a bag, shot at tsa agents, killing one, then moved past security. police followed him down the terminal where he made his way 100 yards down the terminal, past security where they engaged him in a gun battle. passengers were running, screaming, hiding in bathrooms, running out to the tarmac, doing what they could to save their own lives. here's what one passenger told us yesterday. >> i wasn't sure what was happening. i thought it might have been a bomb scare. i saw a man walking around with a shotgun. initially i thought, okay, this is an undercover policeman pause he was walking pretty cautiously. didn't seem like he was in any particular hurry. then it became clear what it was a
. and to that end we as the ciancia family have cooperated with law enforcement agencies with the last several days. it is important to express our deep and sincere sympathy -- >> reporter: you can see here at lax, paul ciancia open fire at the bottom of the stairs where flowers are where the tsa agent fell. he went up the escalator and turned around because he saw he was moving and fired again according to officials. but the 23-year-old accomplished two of his goals when he came here to lax, not the suicide mission part but did want to kill a transportation security administration officer and also to show how easy it is to get a gun into the airport. and this could very well lead to changes in how airport security is run as we heard from eric holder earlier this morning. again, ciancia was shot four times, at least once in the mouth. he's sedated under heavy guard and still in critical condition. we do know he was unemployed motorcycle mechanic who just recently moved to los angeles from a small town, a blue collar town of pensville, new jersey. although he was dropped off here at lax by a roommat

. >> reporter: let's show you a picture of what ciancia looks like. he's said to be a young man, wearing battle fatigues at the time. we understood that he took to the leg. authorities are actually very much taking their time over telling us precisely how he's injured. we know the f.b.i. wants to talk to him. he's been shot in the mouth. that could be a serious injury p probably one of the reasons why they haven't gotten around to talking to him yet. we don't know whether his injuries are actually life-threatening. it's not something authorities have shared with us at this time. but it's very key just how he was injured in terms of how much information he may be able to give the authorities. we have a high security posture right here at the whole airport. terminal 3 has reopened and the airport authority saying things are getting back to normal. it begins to feel that way now. back to you. >> dominic there live at lax, thanks. >>> pakistan is now slamming the united states for a drone strike that killed a taliban leader there yesterday. he is believed to have been behind that failed car bombing
